I collected my new 07 plate Vectra on March 1st and the only question that I cannot get an answer to is the way to switch the dip beam from left to right for driving on the continent. I have been to two Vauxhall Main Dealers and cannot get an answer even after showing them page 135 of the manual (see below).
If a Vauxhall Dealer did adjust the headlights and I drive to Dover to catch a ferry, surely I am breaking the law and the same on the return.
I have been to Halfords and bought some deflectors, which list the Vectra C "facelift" and what to stick where, however with no lines on the lens to work from this is going to be fun.
